The first tomato to show color is a Better Boy.
The Roma III paste tomatoes are covered with green tomatoes but none have gotten any color yet.
The corn plot is tilled and waiting for the corn seed
I like to plant Peaches and Cream corn, a se (sugar enhanced) bi-color hybrid and couldn’t find it locally (shocked, I tell ya) so I had to mail order it. Two years ago I tried Sugar Dots corn but it was small and not as tasty as I wanted
Last year 2012 I planted around the first of May and by the 15th I had maybe 30% germination of the corn seeds. Livingston Seeds Company really let me down.
I mixed cucumbers, squash and beans in with the corn.
So I bought more Peaches and Cream seeds (only offered locally by Livingston Seeds) and replanted. But I noticed that many of the original sprouts were stunted and puny.
Most of the corn sprouts planted in May and early June died.
After only a few plants coming up I found the same type of seed from a different company and eventually we had a proper corn plot. The photo below is what the corn plot looked like on July 15. It took 3 plantings!
This year I will only plant beans among the corn. Bush beans will put nitrogen into the soil. Corn loves nitrogen! If only the seeds will get here soon!
